St. Mary's Orthodox Bookstore: Steps of Transformation

St. Mary's Orthodox Bookstore: Steps of Transformation: "'...a humble and realistic book, full of hope, that bears witness to the immense patience and mercy of God. -- Bishop Kallistos Ware, author of The Orthodox Church and the Orthodox Way

Fr. Meletios Webber… relates the Steps to Orthodox Christian spirituality with clarity, conviction, and appealing personal engagement. -- Fr. Thomas Hopko, author and speaker

Steps of Transformation is very simple, easy to read, and right on target about...alcoholism. -- Floyd Frantz, CAC, St. Dimitrie Addictions Treatment Center, Romania

Addictions and struggles with passions are rampant in our culture. Fr. Meletios Webber, an Orthodox priest with a doctorate in counseling, helps us to understand addiction and explores ways to overcome it. He clearly and skillfully explains the Twelve Steps of the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. In correlating the Twelve Steps with basic Orthodox theology, Fr. Mel identifies the implications for Orthodox, and for all Christians. Using examples from the life of the Orthodox Church, he shows how the Steps can be valuable resource for our own spiritual journey. With an introduction by Bishop Kallistos War."
